(2) At the time of filing a statement of record, or any amendment thereto, the developer shall pay to the agency a fee, not in excess of two hundred dollars, in accordance with a schedule to be fixed by the regulations of the agency, which fees may be used by the agency to defray part of the cost of rendering services under sections 76-1301 to 76-1315.

(3) The filing with the agency of a statement of record, or of an amendment thereto, shall be deemed to have taken place upon the receipt thereof, accompanied by payment of the fee required by subsection (2) of this section.

(4) The information contained in or filed with any statement of record shall be made available to the public under such regulations as the agency may prescribe and copies thereof shall be furnished to anyone requesting them at such reasonable charge as the agency may prescribe.

(5) If the developer registers additional retirement subdivision or community lands, he or she may consolidate the subsequent registration with any earlier registration offering such lands for disposition under the same promotional plan.

(6) The developer, association, and managing agent shall immediately report to the agency any additional liens, adjudication of bankruptcy against the developer, the association, the managing agent, or any principal owning more than ten percent of the interests in the retirement subdivision or community, developer, association, or managing agent, and any action or development which materially changes the condition of the title to the retirement subdivision or community lands or to the disclosures in the statement of record, including the public-offering statement.

(7) Nothing in sections 76-1301 to 76-1315 shall require retirement subdivisions or community lands in existence on August 31, 2003, to prepare audited financial statements from the date of their inception, but such audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal year ending before August 31, 2003, shall be filed as otherwise required by the terms of sections 76-1301 to 76-1315.
